Mari's First Home
Hi friends and family! After graduating with my bachelor's degree in 2022, I recently started a new position as a technical recruiter at an award winning staffing and recruiting firm in Chicago. Since my apartment lease is ending soon, I decided to apply for a condo and was approved! Not only is this a major accomplishment as a recent first-generation college graduate, but also as one of the few people in my family to own property. Putting down roots for myself and also future generations is important to me, and this seems like the best first step!

Since I’m a first time home buyer, my down payment is higher. But, I’m still determined to build a strong foundation in Chicago for myself (and my pup, Whittaker!). It’s never been easy for me to ask for help, but I’m stepping out of my comfort zone. Any amount helps!
